Today's Featured Listing is this stunning and original 95 Ducati 916. What I'm especially impressed with in this example is that it's still original, even after 20k miles have been put on. How the owner avoided the temptation to start modifying is evidence of great self control! It has also been taken care of correctly in the maintenance department with all scheduled service completed and documented. While there is very faint panel damage from a stand still tip over, the pictures clearly illustrate a very tidy, early 916.
I'd like to thank Michael again for supporting the site with the purchase of a Featured Listing. Stay tuned for another great Ducati from his collection, a MH900e with less than 3k miles!
from the seller:
The VIN is ZDM1SB8S9Sv001123, which makes it a Bologna produced unit. It has 19,5k miles now.
The majority of the miles went on the bike in the first 5 years of ownership .
It’s always been garaged and well maintained, and is in very well preserved condition. It was mostly used for day trips to the canyons, It has never been crashed or damaged, other than tipping it over while stationary in a parking lot once about 6 years ago. That resulted in a few scratches on the right side fairing, and the right side mirror broke. I decided not to repair or replace the fairing panel, because the scratches are small and didn’t really bother me, and I wanted to keep the paint original. You can see the scratches in the detailed photos. Overall, the cosmetic condition is very clean.
I’ve got records back to when I bought it documenting service (done by myself or the dealer), warranty work,
I have detailed notes of the work I did when I took it out of storage and refreshed things 2 years ago. . It is in great mechanical condition with no problems whatsoever, but it is due for a valve adjustment and timing belt change soon if the next owner plans on riding it rather than keeping it in a collection.
I have a rear stand and a fitted Ducati Superbike dust cover that will go with it.
